Top Public Schools in Blackstone
I like the town of Blackstone because it is a small and quite town. There is not much to do here, so we have to go to the city to do anything such as going to the movies. However, we do have a small bowling alley. Long ago there was a small movie theater on base that closed down. If it wasn't for Fort Pickett, Blackstone would be nothing. Ft. Pickett is responsible for many of the jobs. I would like to see a KFC come to Blackstone.
Not many "big" crimes happen; just breaking curfew.
It's a place where I would live in my forties.
